Ma'am I am sorry for the delay. It is early here on the west coast.
I am also sorry to be the one to bear bad news. I asked about why you believed that military / VA law would help you to try and see what your rational was. I file claims on behalf of veterans and their dependents to the VA daily, so I have a very clear understanding of the law as it relates to Title 38 US Code (VA benefits
) and Title 10 US Code (military benefits)
There is nothing in either Title 32 or Tile 10 that will trump Title 11 US Code (the portion of the code that covers bankruptcy law). If your son is going through bankruptcy proceedings, Title 11 US Code will determine how his assets are distributed.
If you transferred title to your son, then the court will look to that home as an asset belonging to your son...and will distribute that asset to his creditors as part of the bankruptcy proceedings.
I understand your concern...that you had a property right in that home. But once you transferred title, that right transferred as well. The fact you received title to the home based on dower rights will not stop the court from considering this home as an asset of your son.
Had you never transferred title? Then it would not be an issue.
But since you did transfer title, that asset is now under his control. And since he filed for bankruptcy, the court now has control over that asset. So the history before your transfer to your son will not be relevant.
Again, I am very sorry to be the one to have to bear bad news.
Please let me know if you have more questions on this matter. Happy to help if I can
